Day 27 ............... more of the same

The full moon was bright as we woke this morning to get ready to ride yet another day. Two more days until a day of rest on Friday the 2nd of April. We were treated to yet another day of Texas chip seal and ranches, goats, sheep, and a few mountains in the distance. I shudder to think what that means. Our ride today from Brackettville to Camp Wood, TX was really just more of the same, more of the same. The joints are now really aching from all the vibrating from the road. It's just hard to explain. It's like being in a milkshake making machine. It's even hard to read the road signs because your head just can't stop from vibrating.

We reached the bustling metropolis of Camp Wood, population 800 in time for a relaxing lunch in the Sister's cafe. I had a really good hamburger, the first since we headed out on this journey, a trip to the post office to mail some winter clothes back home to lighten the suitcase, then checking email and getting back "on line" made the afternoon complete.

Tomorrow's ride is 39 miles. I think I know what that means. It appears as though for the next 5-6 days the Internet access will be quite limited so ..... no blog updates.
